This fine collection of vintage trams may not to everyone taste as an afternoon out, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. As you might expect this is a sample of restored Porto trams dating from the 1880's, showing the various developments through the actual electric powered...More

I am sure the Museum would have been interesting but it was closed to visitors for two days on 24-25 May with no warning or explanation on the museum website. Very disappointing for those visitors to Porto for only a few days.

We paid 8 euros each to go in and although the husband enjoyed it, I thought it was too expensive for what it was. Annoyingly, when we then took the tram tour, our tram ticket said it gave you a 30% discount off the museum...More

When you want to entertain a 7-year old boy, you probably can’t go wrong with trains or trams. This proved to be the case when we visited the Porto Tramcar Museum with our grandson. To get to the museum, we rode the #18 tram from...More
